here in washington to justify taking more away from them. secondly, there is a tendency on the other side to view everything as a zero-sum game. in their mind, if someone has more, it means someone else will have less. so i'd like to quote ronald reagan as the best example of this attitude in washington. too many people in washington -- quote -- "can't see a fat man standing beside a thin one without coming to the conclusion that the fat man got that way by taking advantage of the thin one," end of reagan quote. i believe this is what is driving the animas against the so-called wealthy on the other side. they are under the impression the wealthy got rich at the expense of someone less fortunate. the problem with this view is that in a free economy, goods and services are transferred through voluntary exchanges. both parties are better off as a result of this exchange. otherwise it wouldn't occur. moreover, wealth is not static. it can be both created as well as destroyed. at worst, the government is a destroyer of wealth. at best, the government is a redistribute tor of wealth. it is

joins us from washington. speaker boehner plans to go home to ohio today. >> reporter: that's right. he is on his way if not there already. and, you know, you talked about the word frank that was used by both parties, by the white house and by the speaker's office. just like they did over the weekend they put out identical statements, really one sentence statements. diplomatic terms, frank means not so good. and that's the same word that the speaker used a couple days ago to describe their meeting on sunday which we understand from sources was pretty tense. just the fact that they only met for 50 minutes is indicative of the fact that the meeting didn't produce very much. now i understand from democratic sources earlier in the day yesterday that they were going to try to invite the speaker over to the white house to get things moving before he went home to ohio to perhaps put a few of the spending cuts that the speaker has been demanding on the table to try to, you know, cut a -- break this deadlock. doesn't seem like they got very far. >> we've had dead locks before in washington and t

things done in washington than playing politics. i think to recognize there's been real progress made, right the border is safer today, the immigration system is better, the two parties worked together to do that over the last few years. there are still some meaningful things that need to get done. the d.r.e.a.m. act, we have to fix the low-end and high-end visa system. the mexicans are going to do a whole boar border system. i think there will be a lot of room to work together next year to get something meaningful done. if the republicans are earnest and play it straight i think they'll get a lot of credit for working with the democrats to fix the broken immigration system and making it better. jon: getting something meaningful done, it seems like a longtime since that's happened in washington. we'll look forward to it. simon rosenberg. kate obenshane thank you much. jenna: the nato alliance warning the assad regime in syria against using chemical weapons against his own people. this is an attempt to for once and for all crush the 21-month rebellion there. nato is considering a turki

as the "wall street journal" nbc poll. let's go to washington to the senior congressional correspondent. dana, you talked to the two men who spent their careers in congress making deals like this. how do they pull it off? >> it was a fascinating conversation. the two men you are talking are about two former senate majority leaders. a republican and a democrat. trent lott and tom daschle. they worked on opposite sides for almost a decade. that is the question i asked. it wasn't always pretty, but how did you come up with deals when you had touch negotiations like what's going on right now. the answer was simple. talk to each other. >> i do think that they reached a point where they need to quit talking through the media. i'm talking about both parties and the leaders in congress. some of the most effective wi timth theresint or at dn least with the chief of staff and the director with our key budget people and we really talk about alternatives and hammered it out. >> this will be the test. if we reset it has to happen around the fiscal cliff first. there a lot of other issues out there that co

of "fox news sunday". maybe the worst-kept secret in washington. everybody expected it was going to be john kerry. what does he bring to this post, chris? >> well he certainly brings experience. he has been a member of the senate a long time. he is chairman as wendell said of the senate foreign relations committee. he seems to have a good working relationship between president obama and his national security team. in fact obama has used him several times as a personal envoy to deal particularly with problems in pakistan and afghanistan. it got to a point where hamid karzai, the president of afghanistan preferred to deal with john kerry, the personal envoy the president, rather than the u.s. ambassador there. his latest role had been that he played mitt romney in preparations for the presidential debates. some people said that the president didn't like the fact that he, kerry, was a little long-winded during those debate preps. obviously after the first one, president did pretty well. kerry obviously did pretty well playing romney. he will get the job which he clearly hungered for

in the last week, suddenly regulations are pouring out of the bureaucrats in washington and hundreds of pages of them. but the bottom line is as you know having been a governor yourself that states that have to balance their budget such as the state of gorming george, we are struggling in this downturned economy to meet the obligations that we already have with regard to health care, particularly with regard to medicaid. to have an unknown cost factor thrust upon us is something that would be irresponsible in my opinion for us to assume. >> and that is the point they don't understand about medicaid. they said we will take care of your expenses and setting up the exchange and making the massive medicaid expansion. but the states have to pay a portion. and even if the feds are picking it up for year three and beyond, you will be in for literally billions of dollars of new obligations for funding, aren't you? >> exactly. we have estimated it anywhere from two and a half to four and a half billion dollars over a 10-year period. and we don't have any extra money like that lying around in our state

rice in the blogosphere over the last couple of weeks over issues related to the congo. the washington shark cage has been fully activated, and because some people see blood in the water, but knowing johnny and susan and working with them for over the past 16 years i can tell you from personal expense they worked tirelessly for peace in the great lakes. reason the people, however, can disagree over tactics in over strategy. and it is in that spirit that it deliver my testimony today. i'm going to focus my remarks on issues related to the congolese peace process. throughout the latest of congolese congregation and previous conflict there, the root causes of war have not been addressed. leaving these peace processes, and -- to focus on flimsy power-sharing deals and arrangements that have undermined the sovereignty of the congolese state, professionalism and neutrality of the forces. this in turn has left the civil population of eastern congo subjected to globally unparalleled violence and impoverished youth. another unrepresentative agreement between powerful interest within the biggest

to be with us. it's nice to close the doors from the rest of washington and the fiscal cliff debate for a little while and talk about fiscal challenges elsewhere. whether it's a good news or bad news, at least it gives us an opportunity to talk about something a little bit different than the news of the day in this final two weeks, i think, before hopefully congress finds an opportunity to either avoid or move or solve some of the fiscal cliff issues and fiscal challenges that we face. and thank you for dick gravich and the work of the panel and the commission he co--led. there are copies of that report that were available when you came in. it's an excellent document that i really encourage everyone to take a close read. it's filled with good analytics in terms of what's going on on the state level. to help us understand. and i fully agree, dick, with your comments earlier about the disconnect. here in washington, obviously, we're facing our own serious challenges. and sometimes those challenges seem so overwhelming that the notion of adding in the layer of complexity to think about the conseque

] >> bob samuels -- this working? bob samuels from "the washington post." this is for admiral mullen. i think the proposals of the administration are to reduce the marine corps by 20,000 and the army by 80,000 from their peaks, and there is much speculation that further cuts in the pentagon budget would lead to additional cuts in the both the army and the marines. if the united states was put in the position where it had to occupy and protect the oil fields of the persian gulf for an extended period of time, say five, six years, are those forces adequate to do the job? >> one of the, one of the reasons i at least was able to get through the tour as chairman is try not to speculate too much on hypotheticals. the reductions in both the army and the marine corps have been in the budget now -- i think they're in the '13 budget, so basically they've been on the hill, the beginnings of them, they've been on the hill for the better part of a year, and they are reductions both the chiefs of those two services and the chairman all support. clearly -- and i did as well when i was chairman over a
